Order Entry


Improvement: Added new order types for a more diversified trading experience. Added the following orders:

Market-if-Touched
A Market-if-Touched (MIT) order is an order to buy (or sell) a contract below (or above) the market. The MIT order is held in the system until the trigger price is touched. When the trigger price is touched the order is submitted as a market order.

Limit-if-Touched
A Limit-if-Touched (LIT) order is similar to a stop order, except that an LIT sell order is placed above the current market price, and a stop sell order is placed below.

Initial Trailing Stop
For a Buy order, the Initial price should be greater than (>) the current market price (though not required...but if not, the order will trigger immediately, much like a regular Buy Stop where the price is less than or equal to the market price). The Final stop must be less than (<) the Initial stop. This is required because as the asset drops in price, the stop price will continue downward until it hits the Final price, at which point it will no longer trail lower.

For a Sell order, the Initial price should be less than (<) the current market price (again, not required, with same caveat as for a Buy order). The Final stop must be greater than (>) the Initial stop. As the asset price increases the stop will tick up until hitting the Final, and then likewise no longer trail higher.

Improvement: Added the ability to easily turn the volume section on or off under the studies tab.

  

Improvement: Added the ability to zoom in and out of a chart by pinching and dragging on the chart with two fingers.

Added Quote option to Tap/Tap and hold menu


Improvement: Added the Quote menu option to the menu when you tap on symbols in the Positions, Order Book, and Order History sections. When you tap and hold on a symbol in the Watchlist or Most Actives you will see the new Quote option.

  

 
 

 

MB Trading, IB member FINRA, SIPC; MB Trading Futures, Inc. RFED/IB and member NFA. Trading in futures, options and Forex is speculative in nature and not appropriate for all investors. Investors should only use risk capital when trading futures, options and Forex because there is always the risk of substantial loss. MBTFS and MBTFX are sometimes referred to collectively herein as "MB Trading."

1MB Trading FX offers two Forex pricing models. Both models employ our RFED to client facing execution system with slightly different pricing and markup models.  For purpose of clarity the two pricing models (Plan 1 and Plan 2) both operate on the same technology.  The underlying technology is named The MB Trading Electronic Xrossing Network, abbreviated as EXN for the remainder of this disclaimer.  The main differentiator between the models is twofold.

A.    Difference in amount of markup or markdown of liquidity partner (banks) quotes when displayed to clients.
B.    Commission Structure charged to client

Plan 1 or “Pay for Limit” plan employs the EXN technology in a commission model. This model charges a client 2.50 in their base currency per 100k of executed currency for market orders and pays a client .50 of base currency for posted, executed limit orders. In the Pay for Limits model, the term "Payment for Limit Order" refers to a non-market order which is not immediately executable and rests on the internal limit order book for some period of time, thus adding liquidity when another order of equal or greater value fills with the resting order.

Free Commission Plan employs the EXN technology in a markup only plan, which means that MB Trading receives a markup embedded in the spread as compensation. This plan does not add an additional commission, does not pay the client a rebate for posted liquidity as Plan 1 does yet does still offer the benefit of allowing the client to post quotes which is displayed to all other clients on Plan 2.

Additional information to note is that “Actual Total Paid to Clients” counter is kept on the company website which displays The Actual Total Paid to Clients currency number which is updated every five minutes and stops counting during the weekend when the market is closed. The number calculates from the launch of Pay for Limits, which was January 31, 2011.

Due to higher cost of business in China, “Get paid for limit orders” is not available for Chinese residents. All Chinese residents have a fee of 2.50 for all order types. Accounts with special commission rates are excluded from Payment for Limit Orders. There is a minimum fee of $0.01 for all Forex and spot trading orders that take liquidity.

MB Trading earned a 4.5 out of 5 star rating in Barron’s 2011 Review of Online Brokers, tying for the top spot overall. The company earned a total of 33.8 points, one tenth of a point under the top score. MB Trading also scored in the top three for separate categories of Range of Offerings, Trade Experience, Trading Technology, Usability, and Customer Service and Education. MB Trading earned a 4.5 out of 5 star rating in Barron's 2010 Review of Online Brokers. The company ranked second overall and tied for first place in the categories of Trade Experience and Portfolio Analysis & Reporting. The company also won the category of Usability. The company also tied for first place in the separate categories of "Best for Frequent Traders" and "Best for Options Traders." This survey evaluated 27 Online Firms and does not include all Online Brokers.
